jackson. i saw a little wire that said new coach and i was like oh, phil jackson. >> phil jackson retired for a reason a few years ago for the los angeles lakers. he's 70 years old. he's burnt out. he probably doesn't want to be on the bench any longer dealing with a lot of personalities that they have in los angeles, obviously kobe bryant. >> what? kobe bryant has a big ego? >> personality. >> sorry, that was my editorializing. >> exactly. i think mike d'antoni is the right coach for the los angeles lakers right now. he's looking to get back in to a high profile position. the lakers are going to give him that opportunity after being unceremoniously dismissed by the knicks last year. also, because of, let's call it high personality. i think it's a good place for him to restart and it will be good for the los angeles lakers because they need somebody who is going to come in and put in an offense that fits their players. i think that was mike brown's problem with the lakers. he had these guys running and gunning like princeton used to, but the average age is 32 years old. >> out in the blik
